Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta J.2 _ THE LETH8RIDGE HSRAID Monday, June 3, 1972 Alfalfa cubing plant is open me SUIHAKT Herald Staff Wrilpr Tirol Dehydrators Ltd. of Til- ley, 100 miles northeast of Loth- bridge, Saturday officially opened Canada's first alfalfa cubing plant. Located in the heart o! alfalfa country, the plant is set. up to process alfalfa hay from loose and baled condition to easily handled cubes mea- suring about Hi inches in size. The farmer owned plant will employ 18 persons. Work started Tuesday on some stock piled bales and will con- tinue in tills fashion until the first cutting of alfalfa com- mences this season. Al Chrumka of Tilley, presi- dent of the company, said mar- ket interests in tha cubed pro- duct have been beyond expec- tation, especially with Alberta feedlot operators and dairy1 men. He said there has been cor- respondence with four Jap- anese firms as well as from in- terested concerns in British Co- lumbia and Saskatchewan. John Calpas, regional agri- culturist for southern Alberta said this plant could prove to be of significant importance to FURRIER FUR COAT STORAGE TIME THE LETHBRIDGE FURRIERS PHONE 327-2209 agriculture, especially for beef and dairy operators. He feels the plant will stabi- lize the alflafa hay prices and, ince the process gives a more concentrated product, will ex- end the market for alfalfa a greater distance from Ihe East- ern Irrigation District. The process will facilitate ncchanization into the hay in- Justry and prove to be a labor- saving system for all persons concerned in the industry, he lid. The plant equipment will give formers and ranchers a chance :o improve the last segment of the beef and dairy feeding op- eration, providing consistent quality hay forage material. He suggested the process ill short cut some work from the field to the market and in so doing, will help to cut pro- duction costs to the producer. Jack Homer, member of par- liament for Crowfoot, said if this plant is successful, there will be plenty of room for growth in the future. He com- mended the organizers as be- ing men who were not afraid to gamble, men who r i s k e c money and time to improve their own industry. Fred Mandeville, area repre- sentative in the Alberta legisla ture, said this was one grea example of decentralization something wlu'ch was good for agriculture. "As a long time farmer, realize the problems in mar keting and pricing said Mr. Mandeville, "and thi plant will help both these prob lems. "It will handle up to acres of product from the EID and this will mean more si a bility for the farmers." He said the plant will hel the economy of the who! region. "Farm ers don't need subsidies, they need plants like this to hel their he said. Dave Durkson, marketing o ficer for the province, said tl establishment of the alfali plant was one of the most en corn-aging aspects of agricul- ture in the province. "This plant is an example of people getting together, people who say government doesn't loading, and by those who provided aircraft ond pilots.
